$10 Million Available to Fight Forced Labor of Adults and Children

The Bureau of International Labor Affairs is awarding the money to the International Labor Organization

The U.S. Deputy Secretary of Labor, Christopher P. Lu, has announced that the Bureau of International Labor Affairs will be awarding $10 million to the International Labor Organization to fund a global initiative to combat forced labor, according to a report.

"We are committed to eradicating child labor and forced labor by uncovering and addressing their root causes. Our efforts to promote opportunities for parents to find and retain good jobs and allow children to go to school can help break this cycle of poverty and abuse," said Deputy Secretary Lu.

The grant will fund the ILO’s “Bridge Project,” which supports global and national efforts to take action on last year’s ILO Forced Labor Protocol. The project aims to do the following:

  • Help raise awareness globally about the urgent need to eradicate forced labor
  • Invest the needed resources to further data collection to more accurately measure the problem
  • Strengthen supply-chain monitoring and law-enforcement training
  • Implement measures to protect victims of forced labor and to provide them with access to remediation
